As always when in Austin, Texas, be sure to check out Weird Wednesday (January/February 2009 lineup). Previous titles screened include Point Blank.

My current favorite restaurant in Austin is Kyoto Japanese Restaurant. Sushi rolls recommended are their Longhorn and Godzilla rolls. If you’re in a hurry sitting at the sushi bar is recommended. Be sure to tell them sent you if you visit.
